The Quest for the Best Dealer in the World is starting in the South Pacific

2002 South Pacific Finals

Artarmon, NSW
18th June, 2002

    TCS aces, the Sydney based representative of the worldwide TCS Group, today announced details of a Casino Dealers Championship which they hope will become the basis for a worldwide competition.  The TCS aces International Casino Dealers Championship will pit representatives from many of the Casinos in the region against one another in a competition to be run in conjunction with the Australasian Gaming Expo to be held in Sydney later in August.  The tournament will run over the three days of the Show.

    To make sure dealers are up to date with the latest technology, they will be compelled to deal the Blackjack game with a Shuffle Master KING continuous shuffler, and use the latest Chipper Champ Plus on the roulette table.

    ”Casinos will be selecting their own representatives and entering dealers they feel best qualified to take out the Championship”. commented Keith Thornton, Sales & Marketing Director at ACES.  “The finalists will be judged on 15 minutes dealing Blackjack and 15 minutes at roulette, the judging criteria are extensive and we’ve designed the tournament rules to be as fair as possible.  Every operator we’ve spoken with about the Championship is enthusiastic.  We’re expecting a great team of highly professional dealers in Sydney for the finals which will be run on our Stand at A.G.E.” Thornton added.

    “We think it’s a great idea, a wonderful way to encourage our dealers to fine tune their dealing and customer service skills.  The first prize, an all expenses paid trip for two to the G2E Show in Vegas is certainly a huge incentive and a suitable reward for the best dealer in the region.” commented Paul Kruger, Executive Director of Gaming Operations at Conrad Treasury Casino in Brisbane.
